DmC Devil May Cry capable of 200 frames per second on PC
Whether you see Ninja Theory’s reboot as a breath of fresh air or a complete betrayal of the franchise, you’ve more than likely seen the recent stir in conversation regarding the new Devil May Cry reboot. With the game releasing tomorrow on consoles and reviews being posted (including our own), the attention to this title has never been greater. Gamers looking to buy the PC version will have to wait a little while longer though, as the PC version of the game isn’t slated for release till January 25th, but the wait looks to be well worth it. According to PCgameshardware.de, the PC version is getting a wealth of visual upgrades such as improved anti-aliasing, texture, and shadow work.
The PC version is also apparently very well optimized, reaching a staggering 200+ frames per second on videocards such as the Geforce GTX 670 and Raedeon HD 7970. Worry not if you’re not sporting a $500+ dollar videocard though, because during PC Games hardware’s series of benchmark tests, even the weakest card they used, the Geforce GTX 460 was topping 100+ frames per second.
Many fans have been criticizing DmC for not running at 60 frames per second on the consoles as previous entries in the series did, well the PC version is doing well beyond 60FPS, so if you’re a Devil May Cry purist you may want to invest in the PC version of the game.
So yes, us PC gamers will have to wait another 10 extra days to get our hands on Ninja Theory’s beauty of a game, but if every console to PC port sported these kinds of upgrades, I know I’d always welcome a little delay now and again.
